Tracking was difficult as the show really seems to be one long improvisation.
Tracks were split where there seemed to be tape pauses/flips, or Mickey paused to speak.

February 13-14, 1981 Marin Veterans Memorial Auditorium, San Rafael, CA: Rhythm Devils
Hinton was a former drum student of Hart's. Hinton, Loveless and Amarantha had played with the Diga Rhythm Band. In 1980, music from the Apocalypse Now soundtrack sessions was released as an lp on the jazz label Passport Records. To publicize the album release, Micky Hart organized a concert of musicians playing in the style of the album, although of course the music was mostly improvised. The ensemble played two nights at the Marin Veterans Memorial Auditorium in San Rafael, on February 13-14, 1981, billed as The Rhythm Devils. The shows were very well received. Musicians included Hart, Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh (on fretless bass), Airto Moreira and Flora Purim and Mike Hinton. Other musicians also joined in, and I wouldn't be surprised if Greg Errico had been one of them.
Mike Hinton-marimbas, percusssion
Flora Purim-vocals, percussion
Phil Lesh-electric bass, fretless bass, percussion
